Pitchbook (Pitchbook.com) released a new report showing that in the first quarter of 2010 the healthcare sector has attracted a growing portion of investment capital in the form of both minority investments and acquisitions.
I recently met with an IT consulting firm that started several years ago by doing human resource IT work for a large health care company. They started with 100% customer concentration so they knew they needed to develop new customers and new services. They decided to focus on healthcare, and now have several healthcare clients and do both IT and management consulting as well as their orginal human resource work. They now are looking at what they could get for the company if they should sell. I was impressed at their transition, and they will certainly benefit from the work they put into repositioning the company.
